8th grade math for Ms. Sue - last question please

How is an inequality different from an equation? Give a real-world scenario in which you would write an inequality rather than an equation.
I really need to know how an inequality is different from an equation. I know the signs used are different, but what else? I am very confused! Please help!
equation says two things are equal
x+y = 3
inequality says they are not, and in what way.
x+y <= 3
x/2 > y+7
The big clue is equality and inequality
If there is minus the inequality sign will change while equation dose not change e.g a<-3 that is a>-3 while a=-3 also a=-3
